Mapleton Early College

College Readiness One Student at a Time

  • Welcome to Mapleton Early College!

    Mapleton Early College is a hybrid of two high school models: Big Picture Learning and Early College. Students experience a college-preparatory environment balancing classes, workshops, independent project-based learning, real-world learning through professional internships, and access to college courses. Students may apply to pursue an associate degree concurrent to their high school studies. Students and parents are active participants in the design and assessment of the student’s personalized project plan, which starts with the student’s own interests. Around these interests, the student’s advisor, internship mentor and parents create an individualized project curriculum, internship learning goals, community-focused learning opportunities, and college readiness plan. By staying with the same advisor and a small advisory, students participate in a strong culture of high standards, accountability, and support. MEC students learn to become problem-solvers, lifelong learners and cooperative members of the community, preparing them for college and beyond.
